    I have a pair of olive loafers that I wear with grey jeans and all types of khaki colored, well khakis. I thought they would be far less versatile than they have become.

    They are called the Portland. Still show up on the AE Chinese site: http://www.allenedmonds.com.cn/EN/ and in the AE Fall catalog: http://issuu.com/allenedmonds/docs/ae_fall2013_web

    Looks like 333 last, I'm waiting on real life pics and fit report. Have always liked the idea of a black shell NST boot.

    Thanks for the info and links. Second link doesn't seem to work.

    You think AE might have put it on the US site by accident??

    I just sent off an email asking about this boot. I'll report when and if I hear anything.

    In reference to the Portland, the AE site said a few weeks back (or maybe last week) that due to high demand/low stock, the boots were being removed from the site. It did not mention if it was permanent or temporary.

    For all the Saunders owners out there. Any word on how it fits vs the Sanderson and Slaton?

    All of the RL models are narrow, so I tend to go a width up, but I was just swimming in the Illford boot when I got it in my regular size + 1 width up. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Are those Promontory Point boots basically Wolverines? They look like the shell LTDs to me, anyway...

    Hmm.... I suppose khaki's would work (I already recognized that grey pants would work). Can't wear jeans, though. More of a business casual environment. Jeans are ok on Friday only and even then I'm watchful of wearing them if I have meetings and the like. Perhaps I'll have to order a pair as I love my snuff suede pair!

    Gentlemen, AE was supposed to re-release its Jodox model at the end of 2012 but apparently decided not to. There's been some discussion of the shoe on this thread so I thought I'd show you my Jodox, which I purchased new many years ago. I'd love to have this shoe in shell cordovan.

    Compared to a Barrie last shoe:

    Not sure what it is about the Jodox, I just really like it. It was the first 'real' dress shoe I ever picked out & paid for myself, to be worn at my first 'real' post-college job. To be sure it's not for everyone. I just wish AE would follow through and start making it again for those of us who like it - preferably in shell!

    I like them. Love the 2 eyelet look. You're right...they would be great in shell. Maybe enquire about a pair for a MTO shoe??????

    Wondering if you have any info on how to RL stuff (on the 2 last right?) compares to the 1-511 (dalton) last? I have a dalton in a 12D and it fits close to perfect, and I ordered the Eagle County and the RL Sanderson in 12D as well, and I am wondering if I am going to have to see if I can exchange them for 12E.

    I might do that, tifosi. I just haven't had much luck getting any sort of dialog going with AE. I asked them about it a couple of years ago (I even told them I own 7 pairs of AEs and had made my wife take a trip with me to Port Washington WI specifically to see the factory and buy a pair of LWBs) and they simply said "we don't currently make that shoe and we have no plans to make that shoe." AE did list the Jodox as a shoe designated for re-release in late 2012, as part of an anniversary or something. But they didn't follow through. I emailed them again and got the same type of email response.

    Hmmm. That's disappointing. Never hurts to try again. Try emailing Allison. She has been more than helpful to me.
